Outdoor wedding games are a fun way to make sure your guests are totally entertained! Great for cocktail hours and receptions!
When we were planning our wedding, Ryan and I decided that we didn’t want to dance. We have nothing against dancing, but it just isn’t our favorite—and why should we do something that isn’t our absolute favorite on our wedding day?
But you know what we do love? Games! So we decided to have lawn games for our friends (and us!) to enjoy during the cocktail hour and the reception after dinner. We had corn hole, ladder golf, croquet, and giant Jenga. It was all So. Much. Fun. And apparently intense, based on the photos.
If you’re looking to make some of your own games for your wedding or other outdoor event (how much fun would these be at a family BBQ?), here are a bunch of DIYs for you to check out!

That’s some really cool idea to apply for a wedding. It’s really helps to make’s some fun and enjoyable day.
Awesome list. I wish I would have done this on my wedding day! One lawn game that not a lot of people talk about is Irish Ring Toss. While it’s not technically considered a “lawn” game, it can be played outdoors by nailing or screwing it to a tree or the inside of a shed door. It can also be hung inside as well for play. This game is very similar to darts, except without the sharp objects being thrown, and involves throwing rings (large o-rings) onto metal hooks, which each have their own point values.
